Seeing autumn leaves in "rural" Japan

Jump to last reply

I'll be on a Japan tour starting the 3rd week of October and going through the first week of November. Going to Tokyo, Kyoto, hakone, Hiroshima, kamakura, takayama, and Nara. It seems like we may be a bit ahead of the peak of the autumn leaves. After the tour, I'll be traveling on my own for a week or so and one of my priorities is to see the leaves turning (I've lived in California all my life so haven't really ever seen the fall colors). Do you think I will have seen plenty of fall leaves throughout the tour or should I plan on going so someplace else afterwards? I can go anyplace and would be fine taking the train and then a local bus. Even considered renting a car but have pretty much nixed that idea. I was thinking of maybe someplace between Nagoya and Tokyo. Thoughts?

The other question I have (for right now at least!) is about staying in a ryokan as a single person. I understand that some won't consider a reservation for fewer than 2 people. For some reason we won't be staying in one on the tour and I'd like to have that experience. Thoughts about that?

TIA
